Pendant shaped like Vanuatu including terrain data. Sized approximately 3.5cm by 3.5cm with a hook on the back to attach to necklaces. Select stainless steel, gold or bronze.
A silver version of the Vanuatu pendant is also available as a separate product optimized for the silver production method. You can find it (and jewelry for all other countries of the world) on our website www.printablegeography.com
The GeoBling series of jewelry started in 2011 by the Society for Printable Geography uses data from NASA's Shuttle Radar Topography mission to create artifacts resembling the countries of the world with realistic terrain information. Our complex algorithms created by computational geometry and geodata experts can create a custom piece of jewelry for almost any country in the world within seconds.
The thickness of this pendant is between 3mm (where the country is low) and 6mm (the highest peaks). A solid closed hook (no moving parts) on the rear allows attaching this pendant to a necklace. The necklace must fit through a hole sized 4mm by 3mm. Please contact us if you are interested in a different size, different material, a country not currently available on Shapeways or with specific requests for dimensions.
